85th Academy Awards® Press Credentials

Dear Press Representative –

Applications for media credentials for the Nominations Announcement on January 10, 2013, and the 85th Academy Awards on February 24, 2013, are NOW AVAILABLE.

Applications must be completed online no later than 5 p.m. PT on Friday, November 9, 2012. We will not accept late applications.

Applications must be filled out and submitted online.

To access the online credential application:

  1. Log into your Academy Press List account: http://presslist.oscars.org/fmi/xsl/ampaspubs/main.xsl. If you have difficulty with your login or password, please contact credentials@oscars.org.

    *NOTE: If you are not currently registered on the Academy Press List, you may register by clicking the button labeled “Register” at the web page above. Completing a registration form does not constitute applying for credentials. Once registration has been confirmed by e-mail within two (2) business days, the individual may apply for 85th Academy Awards credentials.

  2. Click on the link labeled “85th Academy Awards Press Credentials Application.”
  3. Complete all steps of the application questionnaire.

    NEW THIS YEAR: The primary focus of this year’s application is to gather an outline for planned coverage by your media outlet rather than the number of individuals you wish to credential. Questions regarding coverage have been adjusted accordingly, while questions looking for individuals attending the event have been omitted during this step of the process.

  4. After completing the application, you will receive an e-mail that your application has been received. Once it has been checked for completion, you will receive a second e-mail that it has been submitted for review, including a copy of your application.

Questions regarding the credential application process or other information related to media credentials for the 85th Academy Awards should be e-mailed to credentials@oscars.org.
